Albert Howard spent his boyhood in Shropshire county, England. He was educated at Wellington College, the Royal College of Science in South Kensington, London, and St. John’s College, Cambridge, studying under Marshal Ward. He took his first job teaching at Harrison College, Barbados, and then served as Mycologist and Agricultural Lecturer at the Imperial Department of Agriculture for the West Indies. Returning to England, he took a position at Wye College experimenting with hops. This chapter looks in more depth at the early life of Albert Howard and traces the influence that this period has upon his later ideas. In addition, the family background of Gabrielle and Louise Mattaei is also described in depth.
